Yes, the lack of a DJVU link in the "DOWNLOAD OPTIONS" sidebar is strange. It should be there like it was in the old version of the website.

I came here to download djvu files. Wikisource, an archive sister project of Wikipedia, asks for djvu files in Wikimedia Commons.

It seems like there is no quick option for me. There is a tool to pull djvu files somehow from the Archive to Wikimedia Commons but it gave me a corrupted file in wiki when it looks fine in Archive, so I was thinking to pull the djvu file from here and check it out before uploading it there.

Hmmm....

I know they stopped deriving djvu files at some point but that older works still have them.

This is an online conversion tool that lets you specify the source PDF by URL When giving an archive.org URL to a PDF it will accept http (not https) - it's not the fastest way but seems to work and can be queued with a bunch of options.

Thanks - there are other ways. I managed without too much trouble. It was helpful to know that this service is discontinued.

archive.org no longer derives .djvu files.
